Integration of Failure Analysis and Case Studies in Materials Courses.
Smith, Charles O.
This paper advocates the extensive use of case studies in engineering materials course instruction. The author states that increased enthusiasm can be generated for what is generally considered to be a dull subject by the inclusion of actual engineering problems. To document this, a narrative of three materials courses using differing numbers of case studies is provided. (CP)
